Who's better: Kohli or Smith? Michael Clarke has his say

India vs Australia: 'RCB Quota,' Scoffs Twitter After Squad Is Announced For First 3 ODIs

Kohli became the fastest batsman in the history of the game to reach 30 ODI centuries, after only 194 matches, with the India skipper averaging more than 55 runs per innings. And with Kohli and Smith at the helm, it is hard to see how the two teams would lay off each other if it came down to mind-games. "Steve Smith in my opinion is a better Test batsman right now than Virat Kohli", Clarke told reporters during a panel discussion on Tuesday in the national capital. "It's all about what gives us more balance", the Indian captain added. In Indian Premier League, Warner plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad whereas Smith plays for Rising Pune Supergiant, where they have experienced wearing colourful costumes but apart from that, it will be the first instance for both.

An Australian Journalist have insulted Indian Skipper Virat Kohli on social media.

"The way Kohli leads the team, he is positive and proactive".

Dhawan, the Man of The Series in Tests, smashed 548 runs for India in the complete series.

"In limited-overs cricket, I think Virat is ahead of Steve, but just by that much", he said.

Australia all-rounder James Faulkner yesterday said experience of playing in the IPL and last year's ICC World Twenty20 in India will hold the visitors in good stead in the upcoming limited over series here.




The five match ODI series will begin from September 17 and will be followed by three T2o internationals. And honestly, at the moment, I think it's very even at this stage of their careers. After making the final of the Champions Trophy, they recorded series wins in the West Indies and Sri Lanka.

With 2019 World Cup being considered as the next holy grail, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), national selectors, captain Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are now on an experimental spree to try out different combinations. They were looking within to improve, as individuals and as a team. There's still plenty of time before the World Cup, but the whole squad really needs to start now.

After a long away series in Sri Lanka where the Indian team handed the hosts one embarrassing defeat after the other in all the three formats, the action shifts to home conditions against a very familiar opponent.

An India-Australia series played without fireworks on the field, without the sledging and banter is a rarity. "I have been battling to be honest, probably the last 18 months".

The journalist may have been referring to the match being played between Pakistan and the World XI team.
